xat Game staff interview: Katie
Our next interviewee is Katie!
Hi Katie! Thank you for your dedication to Game chat, and agreeing to be interviewed! I am going to ask you some questions regarding your experience at Game chat. Please answer as honestly as possible.
1. Tell us a little about yourself. What is your real name, where are you from, how old are you, and what are you studying?
My name is Katie, and I am originally from Sweden. I’m 20 years old, and I currently work as a Business Administrator.
2. When and how did you discover xat Game chat?
I remember the first time discovering this chat. It was in early 2012 under the name of Contests. I didn’t spend much time back then, however. Now under the new, current Game format, I returned in late December 2018. One of my friends re-invited me, and recommended me to make a comeback.
3. What about Game chat stands out to you?
Everything. Right now, I think the overall community of Game is progressing really well. The way the staff members are welcome and helping one another out is wonderful. The environment and feel of the chat to me is substantial, and it is a great place to spend time in when I am free.
4. What is your favorite/funniest memory shared in Game chat if you have one?
The funniest memory? Let’s not forget the moment that our Bot loves to get involved in some Gamebot prizes!
Also, he had a bit of an admiration for me at one point.
5. What do you think of the contests hosted here? Do you have any suggestions on how they can be improved?
Honestly, I unfortunately haven’t been able to attend many contests as I’d like to recently. Going from when I do have the experience of being in one, each time, they have been superbly planned out. It is noticeable that more users come into the chat and contests are the main reason as to why they like coming here: to win plenty of prizes and communicate with other gamers. I can understand how much work, time, and effort is put into each contest. It is worth it in the end, as I think it has a positive impact on the Game community generally. In terms of improvement, I currently don’t have anything in mind to change. Perhaps new topics/categories of contests could be considered in the future when it is the appropriate idea.
6. Do you have any new contest ideas for xat that you would like to share to the public as of now?
At the moment, nothing in my mind specifically can think of anything. Currently, the contests being hosted are great. I do like a bit of knowledge though, and learning the history of certain things. Maybe one day there can be a hosting of users trying to answer some questions of a particular subject to win some prizes.
7. What is your overall impression of Game chat?
Game has been a great experience, easily the best community I have been involved with. And I especially enjoy my stay here. The chat is currently managed brilliantly, and I think the room is courteous in many ways. I enjoy playing the various games with users here.
8. Overall, how well are you treated as both a staff member, and a regular user at Game chat?
Throughout my time on this chat, I have been treated pleasantly. The staff here are very nice and have treated me fair, as if I am equally a staff member or just a normal user. I never felt in my time here that I have been left out of anything, and users would often get me to be included in a certain conversation.
9. How long do you think you will stay active around Game chat?
Hopefully I will be here to stay as often as I can. Of course, it is not easy when you have to work or are just busy with real life situations. But I always try to remain active in Game when I get the chance to. Where I do have the free time, I mainly use that opportunity to go onto this chat.
10. Where do you see the future of Game chat?
In my opinion, in the future, Game will go a long way. I think many staff members and owners are doing their best to come up with new ideas and ways to develop the community. We can continue to be active and grow upon many users who will be online here. It will be interesting and intriguing to see what will happen to the chat and see how it will prosper in many years to come.
11. We have come to the end of this interview. Do you have any special message to end this interview?
I would say to the new or existing users of Game who are reading this: If you have any suggestions, or anything in which you feel would contribute to the community, then please come forward. Your support truly means a lot to us all, and if it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t be in the position we are in now. Every moment, every little thing you will do will help us. One last thing: Just thank you for giving me the opportunity to be one of those users in modding Game. It is such a privilege to be in one of my favorite chat rooms on xat. I really do appreciate everything that everyone does for me. Thank you.
